9-11-2020

Updated: Sep 27, 2020


It's the 19th anniversary of 9-11. Over 3000 died and many more thousands followed from related illnesses and complications of the tragedy (CNN).


That event led me to prioritize what are important in my life - faith, family, community and charity.


Early this year, we were struck again, but with a different adversity. One that is unimaginable in magnitude and indefinite in its closure. To this day, there have been around 189,000 deaths and 6.32 million infections, also with complications that only time will reveal (New York Times).


This event confirmed what I already learned from 9-11 - to know my priorities in this life.


Let's not wait for another tragedy to shake us from our complacency with how things are. Let's use this time to strengthen our faith, cherish our families and community, and to always think of those who could use help especially when most needed.
